You once lived in an old house, dominated by your sinful nature, full of condemnation.
You paced the hallways, trying to fix up the house, trying to follow the rules (the law). But you remained in the rut of your sins.
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. He made a way for you to be joined to Jesus (in his death and resurrection) and come to your Father's house.
Your Father's house is full of freedom. The Spirit of life lives there. Jesus lives there (you are joined to him). And of course, the Father lives there.
But there are times you are drawn to the window of your new house, remembering your old life, feeling attracted by the sinful patterns.
Come away from the window (Romans 8:5). Hear the Spirit's voice. He is leading you to the Father. You live in a new house now. Be done with the ways of your old house.
